I had some of the same shits. I remember the old lady down the block had to send me to the store for her Pall Mall cigs and telling me to keep the change. But she was hella hella old and will give me a 10 an sometimes bills would be stuck together and I wouldn’t tell her. She was losing her sight.
I used to save that dough and ball out on snack on Fridays for the TGIF line up with Family Matters, The Dinosaurs, Boy Meet World etc..
